What Are the Hardest Angry Birds Levels of ALL-TIME? We Want Your Opinion!

How many times have you come close to throwing your phone or tablet against the wall because you just can’t 3-star some nearly-impossible level of Angry Birds?

We’ve all been there. We’ve cursed and screamed and maybe said some unfair things about the level designers — sorry, Rovio (we DO love you guys). But in all fairness, those baldness-inducing levels make Angry Birds so much more fun and rewarding! If every level was easy it wouldn’t be an enjoyable game. It’d be like those grade-school “Olympics” where everyone gets a trophy just for participating. Blah!

So with said, now it’s your turn to let us know what levels you’ve found most difficult to 3-star across any of the Angry Birds apps! To help spur your memory we have picked a few of our favorite challenging levels below.

• • •

AMslimfordy Beach Volley Level 5-11

Angry Birds Rio Beach Volley Level 5-11“This level is actually one of my favorites, but holy smokes was it hard. In the grand scheme of things, this was the first level where ABN specifically uploaded a second walkthrough video, just because we got so many complaints that the existing video was “too hard”. Anyways, long story short, I actually managed 3 stars in under a dozen tries. But just after I succeeded, I knew I could’ve sat there for another couple hours with no such luck.” — @AMslimfordy

BirdLeader Trick or Treat Level 3-9

Angry-Birds-Halloween-3-9“I replayed Angry Birds Seasons Trick or Treat 3-9 level SO many times before I finally 3-starred it. Interestingly though, I never found it frustrating. When I FINALLY did earn that coveted third star I felt a great sense of accomplishment. Strange I know, but it was very rewarding (unlike, for example, Red’s Mighty Feathers). But then came Trick or Treat 3-10. Ha!” — @BirdLeader

• • •

Sal9 Mighty Hoax Level 4-14

Mighty Hoax Level 4-14“Angry Birds Mighty Hoax Level 4-14 was, and still is, my ‘Nemesis’. It took me about a year or so to finally overcome this level. It requires four very precise shots, with different aims, and 85K points to get three stars! I was stumped … This is the level that lead me to the Nest’s walkthroughs the first time, a very very long time ago. The legendary @Scarbzscope and @Fujitoast made my day (for those who remember them) and restored my sanity.” — @Sal9

• • •

E-Star Abra-Ca-Bacon 2-8

Angry Birds Seasons Abraca Bacon Level 2-8 Image“Angry Birds Seasons Abra-Ca-Bacon Level 2-8 is my going-bonkers-iPad-almost-flying-across-the-room level! I remember sending the Orange Bird all over the place, but the boulders never fell in my favor. More frustrating was to see those immense high scores while not even being able to get 3 stars. When I finally did get 3*’s by luck of the draw … I ran! fast … out of there (luckily my score was above average so I never had to come back).” — @E-Star

So those are ours. Now let us know what levels raised your blood pressure!

@mvnla2 your mentioning of Piglantis reminded me of another contender for the worst level…. Piglantis 1-1!!! took me forever to get that 3* stars. Ahhhhh what fun looking back at all the struggles we faced right ;)

@sweetp, could be worse. I went to my first civilian dentist, got an infection that spread to my ears, throat, and affected the nerves to the brain for vision, balance and hearing. I have 3×27″ monitors at about $500 each, a $1000 pair of glasses, but I frequently have to use a magnifying glass to see the screen. It’s getting better though. Luckily when Im reclining with my ipad on my chest, about 4″ from my chin, I can see well enough to (try) to play AB. Except for when one of the foster kittens decided he/she wants to squirm in between my chin and the monitor.

Wreck the Halls level 1-12. This one could’ve put me in the looney bin! I probably played this level for about a week before I got above average. Those piggies were too well-protected, and made it very difficult to use only 3 birds as in the walkthrough video! Even now, I can’t even get into the top 100 list. Gaaahh!

Haha, LOVE the video @BirdLeader! Looking back at those levels conjures up many memories of the foot-stomping, fist-pounding, screaming, and almost throwing-the-phone-at-the-wall moments. LOL

OOH………… I shall say the ABSp and ABSW are rather easy…… I cleared all in, say, 6 weeks for Sp and 10 weeks (+1 week for Death Star 2) for SW. These are the only AB games i completed so far, and i also 3-starred the ABS 2013 calendar episode( forgot name) What i found an ipad-flying-across-the-room level was SW2 P1-S3!

I like playing challenging levels. I dislike levels where luck plays more of a role than skill. Thus: All Rocket Chuck levels are on my Do-Not-Repeat list. I cleared them all with three stars, but the last one was miserable. Not fun.

Another level I dislike, and eventually abandoned, was the last Red Feather level. In an ordinary Angry Birds game, you have to get at most four good shots. Usually you can three-star with one or two birds. You can see the whole puzzle at once, and take your time to line up your shots.

In the last Red Feather level (15), you have to get IIRC 12 or 15 perfect shots and you have no time to line up the next shot. You must shoot perfectly 12 times in a row without the luxury of “think time”. Rovio changed the game to allow for re-starts of contraptions, making a truly impossible game merely difficult.

I tried to clear that last contraption but failed and eventually just abandoned it. It ceased to be fun and became a chore. If Rovio comes out with similar levels in the future, I’ll just skip them entirely.

There have been many frustrating levels to 3-star &/or feather over the almost 4 years I’ve been playing AB, but a couple of early levels that were memorable for their difficulty was level 1-7 in Angry Birds Lite & level 1-1 (Seasons Greedings) in AB Seasons Free (followed closely by level 3). Lite 1-7 was the first of the six levels unique to that game & looked like a simple level, but that deception just about drove me nuts as a new player. Seasons Free 1-1, one of the three unique levels in the free version (all 3 of the Seasons Greedings levels), required some very, very precise bird-slinging to get enough points for the 3rd star. Level 3 was also very difficult.

Can’t vouch for the fact that this level is “most” difficult, because I confine my Angry Birds to Star Wars*. But it was wicked. SW B3-18: “ this level is so incredibly difficult,” according to Slim, initially.

Someone finally found an easier strategy, but even so it was very challenging. This one took a good strategy, good reflexes, and pure luck. Maybe the Angry Birds difficulty trifecta. Or at least some suggestions on how to evaluate “most difficult”.

I found almost every levels in the bird side of Battle of Naboo are all hard to get three stars. Especially five levels of the end, they are very hard to pass.

There were so many levels that were frustrating for me that it’s hard to pick just one. The worst ones are the ones that require luck, not skill, i.e. explosion has to send one piece of shrapnel to an exact spot, or rotating/falling laser has to hit a certain target. Oh, yeah, let’s not forget the halloween levels, with the sometimes ghostly blocks. Im wondering if I can get Rovio to buy me some regaine (sp?) since there were so many follicle-reducing levels.

For ABO, it is without a doubt

Surf n Turf 19

This one was on the free app, and discouraged me from purchasing the game, because it seemed too difficult for me. Even after I purchased the game, I had lots of troubles in 3-starring it.

For AB Space, I remember having been in trouble with

Danger Zone 28

although it is partly because the smallness of the iPhone screen is a really big disadvantage here.

Then, for ABSW, I disliked most of the Cloud City episode, and had troubles with several levels there. The last one I 3-starred — and I needed the walkthrough for this — was

Cloud City 4-15

It was just impossible for me to figure out how to finish that one.

Insanely hard levels for me to get three stars in Angry Birds Star Wars:
4-15, 4-23, 4-35, 4-40, 5-23, 6-2, 6-5, 6-11, 6-13, and 6-26.
In Angry Birds Space:
4-4, 6-22, 6-28, 8-20, D-9, D-10, D-12, and D-30
But some levels in original game is extremely hard, I found it not too hard such as level 6-12.

By E

Angry Birds Space 4-9. Even just completing it is hard, and even after countless tries I have not found a way to get 3 stars. Angry Birds Star Wars 5-29 is also one of the hardest.

By E

AB Space 4-1 is super easy but it is super hard to get 3 stars.

One bird is the only way. Accuracy and luck are the factor to earn 3 stars.

i might add some more levels to this, one per espisode tops if that… prolly more like 3 or 4 per individual game. But three i know right off the bat without even looking are these


….. not so hard to get 1 star, but took me over a month lirerally to get 3 stars….. although when i did, I was quite a bit above average


although i never checked out the walk-thru, this one is still hard for me just to clear let alone get 3 stars….


again, no walk thru…. was the last level I three starred in all of SPACE before cosmic crystals came out except for the egg i unlocked when i finally did it….1 star not so hard….3 stars arrrggghhhh

BIRDDAY PARTY (original one i guess with 2 candles now) level 8

okay i may as well throw one in from the original game….the walk thru finally helped me on this one, without it i might never have got it

theres at least one level from mighty hoax i am sure, but can’t remember the level number right now

SURF AND TURF level 43

some of this might be because i was not as good as I am now, but I think this level is very hard. The facebook version as well. not sure if it is the same level # in facebook, but on the phone app it is 43.

found the level number up above as somebody else also hated this level. As a whole this episode is probably one of the best if not *the* best in terms of puzzles to figure out. Seemed like sometimes they didn’t even hoax a level just to keep you guessing.

QUOTED: “Season’s Greedings level 1-17 may be the most difficult level in the entire Angry Birds series to earn 3 stars. The best strategy is to fire the Red bird through the square and rectangular snow blocks supporting the top-left pigs. You must pop all four pigs in one shot ….. ”

Not sure if anyone did mention the above level (copied and pasted from ABN website). The is THE most memorable one for me and should be one of the hardest by far …. i think i tried over 300 times before i could 3-star it!!!!

The hardest Angry Birds game of all time must be the Angry Birds Star Wars 2. Angry Birds Nest is the only thing that I can use so I know how to do them. My all time most hated and most hard chapter for me is Mighty hoax.

For me one of them must be Space Danger Zone 4 – could never 0 bird this and I’m still below average on it (though I recently had a 4k increase).

And doing some of those Wreck The Halls in Seasons after the Santa hat glitch was fixed was challenging too!
